Quit Smoking for Life
Don’t let withdrawal symptoms and anxiety stop you from achieving your goal. There is a more holistic and effective solution using electro acupuncture. Dr. Rui’s average success rate is 85 percent and there is no need for patches, gum or pills after the treatment. What’s more, it helps you get through all the stages related to quitting such as anxiety control and weight gain.
A full history of your general health and details of your current lifestyle and concerns are considered during the initial consultation. This allows Dr. Rui to establish a clear picture and understanding of the underlying causes of your concerns and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Acupuncture diagnosis focuses on the individual and not just on the ailments. All symptoms are seen in relation to each other, so two people with the same diagnosis may be treated completely differently.
